15 Feb-26 March 2006. In collaboration with the National Theatre, Shunt theatre collective presents a homage to film noir, performed in their temporary home in the shunt vaults under London Bridge Station. Based on the work of Cornell Woolrich (1903-1968), whose stories of sex, mystery and city nightscapes earned him the title of Father of Film Noir, Amato Saltone makes for an unusual night at the theatre. Shunt specialize in creating theatrical events in unexpected venues, and the dank vaults under London Bridge station have already hosted a previous show entitled Tropicana. Amato Saltone explores the themes of voyeurism, mistaken identity and the seductive delights of film noir in a performance that sees the audience as active participants each armed with a false identity as guests in a sleazy nightclub. Admission 20 concessions 15. Most performances start 19.30 Weds-Sat. See website for other times. Smoking is permitted. Under 16s and latecomers will not be admitted.
